Gandalf is neglecting his duties in order to traipse about the coast, and it falls to Saruman, most powerful and wise of the Maiar, to ensure that the grubby, hole-dwelling simpletons retake Erebor from the dragon so that Smaug is not seduced into the enemy’s hand. One such as he is far too busy and important to personally shepherd them through this venture, but nor can he trust in their limited competency. Instead, he turns over the seas for someone to go in his place, someone uninvolved with Middle Earth’s politics and unlikely to make a mess of things. He accidentally hires the Akatsuki.
